Carol Shepard began her career at Steelcase and after 15 years continued with Herman Miller where she spent 9 years.  As the founder of Carrot Rep Group, Carol wanted to be able to offer her customers innovative, quality products for a variety of settings.  She feels that the industry has become more value-focused in recent years and has sought to partner with manufacturers that support this concept while providing excellent solutions to assist businesses in achieving their goals.
